Colin Sound perfect for us, right ??
I did import a few MacBooks and loads of iPhones (when they were new on the market 3 years ago) and I never had a warranty issue.
In Germany we have by law an extended warranty of 24 months. First year is Vendor Guarantee, second year is down to the reseller or shop, who sold the product to you. But it has to be clear, that the defect has to be from the very beginning.
So, if we buy a product in Germany, then you pay the currency uplift for most of the products, but you get the "extended warranty".
If you import the product legally, then you save probably 10% over local prices. If you get around customs - which would be illegal - then you could safe another 19%.
Most likely written on my iPad
thanks sir, it very well

What is one to do with you, woman?
I live in Indonesia and have my brother in USA bought iPad 2 64GB 3G (AT&T).
My question is do we really need to activate AT&T in USA or just grab it and use it in Indonesia without activate it ? I heard from some people that we need to activate it in USA before took it to other country ouside USA otherwise we'll face problem to activate it using the local sim card.
Please kindly advice.

If I would buy the Apple Care would this settle it? Would I then be able to go directly to the Apple store?
As far as we know, when you activate an AT&T iPad, the software expects to find an AT&T SIM card in the iPad and it takes you through the process of activating this card.

If you take your iPad back to Indonesia and put in a local SIM card, it is not clear how you would be able to negotiate this procedure. We have several Members who purchased iPads in the US and returned home with their iPads and did not activate them in the US. When they got home they were not able to activate the 3G functionality.
Thanks for the reply. But the website said that iPad 2 is unlocked. What does it mean, if we still have to activate it in USA ?
